The Marshall University School of Theatre and Dance presents "Our Town," by Thornton Wilder, Nov. 9-12 and Nov. 16-19 in the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center's Frances Booth ExperimentalTheatre.
Our Town tells the story of two families in the small town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage" and "Death and Eternity." Performed with minimal props and sets, the play portrays the daily lives of the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry and -in one of the most well-known scenes in American theatre – pass away.
Tickets are free for students with a valid MU ID, and are $20 general admission; and $15 for seniors age 60 and older and for Marshall employees. Call 304-696-ARTS.
